The Beatles didn’t exactly have the luxury of rejecting songs. Thanks to their contract with EMI, the band were required to put out two albums worth of material a year, not including additional singles every few months or so. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were writing like mad men in the early days, partially because they knew they were tapping into something fertile, but also because they simply didn’t have any choice.

That being said, not everything could make the cut. Ringo Starr was originally going to sing an original on the Help! album rather than covering ‘Act Naturally’, but ‘If You’ve Got Trouble’ was deemed too inferior to be included on a Beatles LP. George Harrison had only his second self-written song, ‘You Know What to Do’, rejected from inclusion on A Hard Day’s Night. McCartney even saw one of his early tracks, ‘I’ll Be On My Way’, dropped from the band’s setlists.
